OBJECTIVES To determine if the coblation tonsillectomy (subcapsular dissection) results in less postoperative pain, equivalent intraoperative blood loss, equivalent postoperative hemorrhage rates, and faster healing compared with tonsillectomy was performed using unipolar electrocautery in adult patients. STUDY DESIGN The authors conducted a prospective clinical trial. METHODS Forty-eight patients underwent tonsillectomy and were randomly assigned to have one tonsil removed with coblation… CONTINUE READING
